the price. welcome to. it's good to have you with us indonesia one day away from electing its next president the largest muslim nation in the world needs to decide between president york dodo and. bold faced off against each other five years back and this time around both to appeal to conservative voters what instance you know those vice presidential pick.
gay views and so beyond has all been allies with islamic hard line so how crucial will islam be in this election here's more from did a cleric in jakarta. more muslims call indonesia home and than any other country on earth. now the young democracy is at a crossroads as its tradition of religious tolerance is put to the test by this year's elections despite the tensions indonesians are excited to go to the polls. for me the most important thing is security without chaos to choose a president who carries out the people's will. no one should refuse to pull up. people carry out their duties and go to the polls i peel to the people of indonesia to go to their local polling station and nobody should not for. this coming election is important because one vote can determine the fate of the nation. this
year islamic identity has been at the center of how candidates compete especially in the conversation taking place behind the scenes president joko widodo and his sole competitor. ran against each other five years ago but this election is much more than just a rematch in the last few years islam is to groups that used to be considered fringe have come into the mainstream and this election will be a test of how much religion based politics has come to shape indonesia election watchers say religion has played a central role in the campaign the president has been attacked by conservative opponents for not being muslim enough. real muslim. is a joke. or. the discussable the islamic. being a basis to that to the profiling got
a statistic in pursuit of knowledge of this guy needed some activists are unhappy with both of their options for president they say the entire system is corrupt that's given rise to a small but vocal protest movement called put or i'm not voting that's refusing to go to the polls we are so divided we no longer even trust our neighbor we have different political option and we refuse we simply don't do not trust those who have a different political choice. for those who do vote their choice may well determine whether the country's traditional religious freedom will be overpowered by the rise of islamic groups and lead indonesia down the road of religious intolerance. for more let's head to jakarta i did have news from our indonesian service is following developments for us and it's good to see you know both presidential candidates have
tried to reach out to conservative islamic voters is it fair to say that in the end it could be islam that's the deciding factor in this election. but islam surely plays major role in this election and both candidates try to get more votes by. showing they are. mr jerkily dodos true sir mr michael so i mean this is fact is perceived in show candidates he left mr trouble so beyond that with no other choice other than seeking support from radical islamic groups. i only used it as an defeat to oppose both offered candidates has very moderate religious fuels and. very sick or political intonation when mr jubilee due to won their last election he sealed his cabinet with women and banned. groups that calls for sharia law to took place in the
democracy and the same goes to probable who comes from a very christian family here actually then what has happened in five years of joke or doubles rule that political islam is brings an important role in the elections this time round. well i think the root of the conflict lies long time ago it has been a long standing struggle between modernise and traditional islam since the fall of soeharto ninety ninety eight both of the both groups tried to influence indonesia's politics. and in two thousand and four and two thousand and nine days failed to do. but they came to momentum in two thousand and fourteen when radical islamist groups use mr joko allegedly led office let me credentials. and those force him to seek political. support from the
lama for example a large islamic organization which is the moderate in terms of their islamic teachings but also very very conservative in terms of individual rights and freedoms they think it's possible he how important is this issue amongst ordinary voters. well for many i think economy still plays major role still far more far more important thing to decide election but there are many many people who are things. really just ideology off there proceeded important. election of the christian governor in two thousand and fourteen in jakarta has only hardened disaggregation and segmentation of the society you know many people things that. the leaders should be in line with their own ideology right of self religion and also politic you know rob from indonesia service. thank you so much for that.
